To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping ~ Chinese proverb
The baseline sonogram went well. The very cheerful nurse (whose personality reminded me so strongly of my sweet sister in law, I had a hard time getting her name right) admired my purse (large, red, leather) and my fingernail polish (Patent leather black…I was testing it for my halloween costume last night and just didn’t bother removing it). I think it was one of the girliest conversations I’ve ever participated in. I have an appointment on Tuesday for a mock transfer and a saline sonogram. I start my lupron shots tonight and continue with the birth control pills through next Tuesday. My transfer is tentatively scheduled for Dec. 2.
I tried to think of something profound or witty to say, but I’ve got nothing. It is what it is. It will work or it won’t and there is very little I can do other than take my medications to impact the outcome. If it doesn’t work, we will try again. If it does work, well, we’ve learned that that is certainly no guarantee and we’ll do everything we can and try not to focus too much on all that we can’t control. I don’t know if that is truly zen of me or just very depressing.
